Tensor calculus is applied to the areas of dynamics, elasticity, fluids, electricity and magnetism. The principal basis of a curvilinear system is constructed as a set of vectors tangent to the coordinate lines. When the objects you deal with are no longer vectors but something of higher dimensionality iike planes. More complex problems arise when one considers the tensor fields that describe continuum bodies. You're an EE student, hopefully you'll forgive me if I use a concept from mechanical engineering. Many of the basic equations from physics, engineering and science are developed which makes the text an excellent reference work.

The second half of the text concludes with an introduction to quaternions, multivectors and Clifford algebra. The existence of these two bases is responsible for the mysterious covariant and contravariant terminology encountered in tensor discussions. The language of tensors, originally championed by Einstein, is as fundamental as the languages of calculus and linear algebra and is one that every technical scientist ought to speak. When are you going to need tensors? I do think that in general tensors get very divorced from their geometric interpretation and that this is a serious source of confusion. A great deal of material is devoted to the geometric fundamentals, the mechanics of change of variables, the proper use of the tensor notation and the discussion of the interplay between algebra and geometry.

Once linear maps, multilinear maps, tensor products of spaces, etc.

These are usually where dyads are introduced. It shows how this material is applied in mechanics, covering the foundations of the linear theories of elasticity and elastic shells.

The early chapters have many words and Introduction to Tensor Calculus and Continuum Mechanics book equations. The second half of the Introduction to Tensor Calculus and Continuum Mechanics book presents applications of tensors to areas from continuum mechanics. There are four Appendices.

These rules are relatively simple and easily grasped by any engineering student familiar with matrix operators in linear algebra. In some areas, tensor fields are so ubiquitous that they are often simply called "tensors". The concept enabled an alternative formulation of the intrinsic differential geometry of a manifold in the form of the Riemann curvature tensor.

The remainder of the book shows how one can apply these results to differential geometry and the study of various types of objects in continuum mechanics such as elastic bodies, plates, and shells. Objects that tensors may map between include vectors which are often, but not always, understood as arrows with length that point in a direction and scalars which are often familiar numbers such as the real numbersand, recursively, even other tensors.

They are allowed to undergo transformation. The tensor technique, invented at the turn of the 20th century, is now considered classical. The use of tensor fields allows us to present physical laws in a clear, compact form.

The Appendix B contains a listing of Christoffel symbols of the second kind associated with various coordinate systems. In this case general curvilinear coordinates become necessary.

Since the stress tensor describes a mapping that takes one vector as input, and gives one vector as output, it is a second-order tensor. A full-on dyadic tensor, then, is just the sum of a scalar and a plane. The remainder of the book shows how one can apply these results to differential geometry and the study of various types of objects in continuum mechanics such as elastic bodies, plates, and shells.

The text has numerous illustrative worked examples and over exercises. The book can be useful for beginners who are interested in the basics of tensor calculus. In geometry the geometric situation is described by numbers, but you can change your numbers arbitrarily.

It is the first textbook exposition of this important technique and is one of the gems of this text. Consider a voluminous body with internal stresses. The book contains practically all the material on tensors needed for applications.

These rules are relatively simple and easily grasped by any engineering student familiar with matrix operators in linear algebra. The existence of these two bases is responsible for the mysterious covariant and contravariant terminology encountered in tensor discussions.Dec 03, · Derek F.
